June is for Writing Letters

In trying to do things a little different around here, I’ve been searching for some new ideas, and yesterday I came across one that I think will be both fun and unique!  Laura Tremaine, over at Hollywood Housewife, had the great idea to spend the month of June writing more letters, and I’m totally up for the challenge!

Writing letters is thoughtful, kind, sweet, and sort of magical.  I used to love sending cards and letters to people when I was in high school.  I would collect all kinds of cards and stationary and send words of encouragement to anyone I had an address for!  Somewhere along the way in the past 15 years I got busy and decided I didn’t have time to do this precious task.  What a shame.  While this challenge will look a little different since it will be unfolding online, I still think taking time to write letters to those that I love and cherish will be joyous.  And who knows…maybe it will give me the kick I need to get back into sending words of encouragement on a more consistent basis.  I hope it persuades you to do the same!

Enjoy!

    Annie, several years ago I came across this small book on a side table at Barnes and Noble.

    A Simple Act of Gratitude: How Learning to Say Thank You Changed My Life. John Kralik (221)

    It was such an inspiring book, and although I’m not very good at it yet, I was struck by his determination to send a note to someone every day for a year. Your challenge for a month might be motivation to get my year started. Thanks for reminding me of the power of putting pen to paper!! Such a simple act, yet so impactful in the lives of those we love and admire!!
